1974 Armada It's all so exciting - Jo, Grizel and Robin are to spend the end of their Christmas holidays travelling with Miss Maynard in Switzerland. And when they return to the Chalet School, Grizel is going to be head girl!
But Grizel starts to act in a very strange manner. Early one morning she goes off alone on a sightseeing trip - completely disobeying Miss Maynard. A very odd way for the future head girl of the Chalet School to behave! - 1974 Armada

1988 Armada It was a big experiment making Grizel Head Girl. Though she hated to do anything and fail, she did not like the sound of "School first; self last". There are certainly plenty of dramas in store to test the headstrong Grizel!
A hot-headed prefect sets out to disgrace her, a sightseeing trip ends in disaster, the Robin is kidnapped and then there's Cornelia, the new American pupil, who seems determined to upset everyone... - 1988 Armada

The redoubtable Grizel Cochrane takes centre stage in this incident-packed Chalet School story.
Appointed head girl, Grizel blots her copybook before term even starts and many doubt whether she has the character for such a responsible job. She also faces jealousy from people like the spiteful Irish girl, Deira O'Hare (O'Hagan). Her row with Deira almost leads to tragedy.
Snow-fights, a lunatic man of the mountains, kidnap, an escaping rebel - Grizel is sorely tested and only the courage, humour and resilience of a true Chalet School girl enables her to win through. - 1988 Chambers
